GAVO load dialogue with an example query on the milli-Millennium
         database

GAVO load dialogue with an example query on the milli-Millennium database

This dialogue, selected from the Load Window's toolbar button () or the main VO menu, permits direct queries to the services provided by GAVO, the German Astrophysical Virtual Observatory. The main databases of general interest available through these services are the Millennium Simulation results, documented at http://gavo.mpa-garching.mpg.de/Millennium/Help.

To make a query, fill in the fields as required:

Base URL
This determines the database to be queried. The following options are available:
Milli-Millennium (http://gavo.mpa-garching.mpg.de/Millennium)
Public simulation results database, containing a fraction of the full simulation results. No username or password is required (the User and Password boxes will be disabled).
Millennium (http://gavo.mpa-garching.mpg.de/MyMillennium)
Full, protected simulation results database. The username and password must be filled in for these queries. Registration is by application to GAVO.
Other
Other GAVO-provided services can be accessed from this dialogue by entering the relevant base URL here -- users of these services will know what they are. They may or may not require a username and password.
User
Password
Registration information if required (dependent on base URL as above).
SQL Query
The text of an SQL query on the database in question.
Then click the OK button, and the query will execute and load the results into TOPCAT. Clicking Cancel while it is in progress will stop it running.

The HaloSamples and GalaxySamples menus provide some examples of queries on the Milli-Millennium database (these have been copied from the GAVO query page). If you select one of these the SQL Query panel will be filled in accordingly.

Much more documentation, including tutorials and descriptions of the database schemas, is available on the GAVO website, at http://gavo.mpa-garching.mpg.de/Millennium/Help.
